Welcome to the East Auckland Kayak Fishing Club (EAKFC

We organise regular fishing trips for our members in the Auckland area and further afield – our members come from all over Auckland.

                                                  
It is one of the oldest Kayak Fishing clubs around, since 2007 to be exact, and we have members that come from all walks of life enjoying this style of fishing.

It is highly recommended that the interest and application of this sport is already in action before joining as it greatly helps with your advancement in the sport.

For example, roofrack or trailer to transport your kayak, the basic fishing gears 1 softbait rod and reel, jigheads 1/4oz 1/2oz, packets of softbaits of the variety of brands available.

To protect yourself, a life-jacket suitable for the sport is a must and not to be taken lightly.

Vhf radio is also very important, and so is the correct clothing for this water sport.

Wearing thick warm clothing is not recommended as it will become a life and death situation if you should capsize, your clothing will soak in water so quickly acting as extra weight as you struggle to keep yourself afloat.

Do your research on the sport, there's plenty of information out there to learn from,for example,Youtube is loaded with it.

when purchasing a kayak for yourself, specially for fishing, it is highly recommended that you ask the questions, search for the reviews and experiences of others, and by doing this eliminates the disappointment later on.

All kayaks have a load capacity, make sure it can handle your weight, your gears plus extras, if you don't get that right, obviously it won't float and or the stability is affected dramatically.

Hope this bit of information helps in some way with your Journey of opening doors to discover the full enjoyment of kayakfishing.​​​​​​​
